Hampi is an extraordinary mix of relaxation and history of a bygone era.
If you have had a read of my most recent ‘Postcards Home’ post (if you haven’t, find it here), you will know that I instantly fell in love with this majestic city. Worlds apart from the coastline of Goa, Hampi is bathed in outstanding landscape, history and atmosphere, making it a must visit in the South of India.
To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,
I have had a fabulous first week of travelling solo (not to say I’m not missing my travel buddy though!). After surviving my first sleeper bus, I spent the end of last week in the enchanting city of Hampi with a couple of girls I met at my previous stop, Palolem. A UNESCO World Heritage site in the state of Karnataka (around a nine-hour bus journey from South Goa), Hampi is a calm city with some of the most unusual and outstanding scenery I have ever seen.
